Every Tuesday the ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish host a book related Top 10.
This week is “Last Ten Books that Came into My Possession”.
Last Five Book Purchases
Since rediscovering the library my books purchases have drastically diminished. I had to go back 3 months for 5 books. Unfortunately they end up at the bottom of my TBR because I always have library books due back.
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
This books sounds amazing and so far it’s in the moderate amount of hype range. I need to read it before I’m sick of hearing about it without reading it.
P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han
If you told me when I finished To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before that I wouldn’t read the sequel the SECOND it came out I wouldn’t have believed it. Still really excited for this one.
All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
For a serious book I’m really excited about it – I just need a solid weekend that I don’t have a bunch to do. I need to not have distractions when I read harder books.
Come as You Are by Emily Nagoski
This was actually a library book and about 50 pages in after wishing I could write notes on every other page I decided to go ahead and buy it. If you’re looking for a good non-fiction read and have any interest in women’s sexuality (AKA you are a woman or you might want to have sex with one) this is a really interesting informative read.
Inked by Eric Smith
The lone ebook in the mix – I picked it up for $1.99 and I’ve heard great things. But ebooks have taken a backseat to library books and physical purchases.
Last Five Library Books
I’ve talked a lot about my recent rediscovery/love of the library. These are all very recent
Watchmen by Alan Moore
A co-worker strongly recommended this and since it’s mentioned favorably in Eleanor & Park I decided to give it a try. It will only be my second graphic novel but I’ve only heard good things.
Between the Notes by Sharon Huss Roat
As mentioned in my last post, I love music and therefor books with music.
Always Emily by Michaela MacColl
Fictionalized story about Emily and Charlotte Bronte growing up. I literally downloaded the ebook from the library about an hour ago.
Rook by Sharon Cameron
I honestly am not sure what this is about other than taking place during the French Revolution. The description is very intriguing without giving anything away.
The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien
Honestly I’ll be surprised if I get this read, but I wanted to try something different for me and this was the winner.
